650 ml bottle served cold into an unmarked pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for $7 CDN.

Appearance - Midnight black, with a decadent finger and a bit of brown head. Impossible to see the carbonation and OK retention time with a thin layer of sticky lacing. A good looking stout.

Smell - Oatmeal graininess with a splash of a vibrant dark fruits namely currants and maybe some grape. Quite interesting and broadens the horizons beyond the traditional oatmeal stout.

Taste- Very nice and interesting blend of flavors. Some oatmeal goodness transitioning to a dark fruit medley of currants, prunes, pears, red grapes and raisins then kind a creamy vanilla flavor before settling back into the traditional stout flavors associated with an oatmeal stout, being dark chocolate, a touch of coffee and molasses.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and creamy, moderate carbonation with a lighter than expected body and a little thinner than a big stout, works really nice.

Overall - A great oatmeal stout with plenty of flavor, good balance and an easy drinkability that makes this a go to beer for your oatmeal stout needs.

Flavor is disappointing: more like a porter than a stout. Even a hint of Budweiser.
Nice color, pours great.
